Our server Luis was excellent. First night out since the beginning of the pandemic. We had a wonderful time. The menu had a variety of options including some excellent ones for plant based eaters.
We love Meso Maya and this is our favorite location. My fiancée and I came here for our anniversary. Jesus and Nancy were wonderful and made our evening very special. Our server, Mildred, was excellent. The food and drinks were delicious as usual.
Please consider a soundproof section for seating screaming children and their oblivious parent(s).
Biggest thing was not being attended as often--we had ordered a side of queso and guacamole and we never received it. I would recommend this restaurant to someone who has time to wait.
The Serrano Enchiladas and Enchiladas Del Mar are excellent!
Food was amazing as usual and service was fast and friendly. Favorite queso in Dallas!
Great food; very professional staff; overall great experience.
Great food and very helpful service
Phenomenal. Exceeded expectations and tremendous value for the quality.
We were selected to participate in the Dallas Arboretum Artscape. As out of towners we went to Yelp to find a place new to us with good reviews and found Meso Maya. Luckily we were able to find a convenient reservation time on Open Table so we were seated immediately upon entering the restaurant. The server was very kind but rushed as the place looked packed. The chips and salsa were on our table fast and they went fast too as both were sooo good. That salsa!!!! I wanted to bottle it up and bring some home. We ordered drinks and dinner fairly quickly and it was at the table fairly quickly as well. I ordered veggie enchiladas and hubby ordered shrimp and crabmeat enchiladas. Both were very good with great flavor. We shared a guacamole salad and I know I could have eaten the entire bowl myself! The noise level is fairly high but it's a large place and patrons and employees were everywhere. We're new fans & can highly recommend!
Steak was good but the margaritas were. It good. Our server was nice. Probably will not go back.
Been here several times when I visit Dallas and so far everything we have ordered is very good !
Love the salmon coco! The veggies that accompany it are the best tasting veggies I’ve ever eaten !! Yummy!!
Food and drinks always good! Stay at the patio wasn’t a great idea because it was cold and heaters didn’t help.
Food was awesome, the server was amazing!
Solid neighborhood staple. Good food. Staff is always very nice and appropriately attentive. Seldom a lengthy wait.
Nice casual setting
Great food , good service, I love the carnitas appetizer
It was wonderful!
love the outdoor tables, price reasonable, sweet server
We're regulars, coming in almost every weekend. The service is warm, relaxed and timed to whatever "speed" we feel like eating and/or relaxing that day. Every waiter is excellent and we have become fond of several who treat us like family. The food is outstanding - not even close to Tex-Mex (though they do have outstanding tacos and enchiladas). Our favorites are the Salmon Di Coco, The Chile Relleno and Tostaditas. Oh, and their salsa is roasted chipotle, the best in town. Add in a couple of $3 bloody mary's and you can't beat it. We're so lucky to have them in our neighborhood!
Great food, expert and personable service. Outddor dining.
All was good actually, except we didn't like that they put chairs at a booth to make more room felt they were in the way of walk flow for the staff.
I usually go
To the Downtown location, but I think I’m changing locations, it was my sons birthday dinner and due to work we needed a late dinner, I tried to go to the Downtown location and I called and they told me we couldn’t be seen at 8:30 because the kitchen closed at 8:30, I was disappointed that they close at 9 but kitchen closes at 8:30, but anyway I was able to reserve a table at the Lakewood location and they greeted us with a smile and served us with a smile k will go here again!!
Service was a bit slow- waited quite some time for drinks and to order our food.
First time here.... and won't be our last! Went for Sunday bruch and our table of five was all very impressed.
Great food and service. Will be back.
Food is always fresh and delicious. Outdoor seating was nice.
Food is fresh, flavorful and delicious. We sat in patio and enjoyed the beautiful day. Fantastic server and great service. Top notch lunch choice.
Excellent food, patio is nice. I have eaten here several times and it has always been excellent.
The server was great! He took time to talk about both the restaurant and it's signature dishes, made sure we were taken care of at all time even though we were on the outside area and not a lot of other clients outside that day. The food was great too and big portions.
Very good food and unique, delicious flavors. Would help to be able to view a drink menu. Dessert menu could be expanded. Overall very good. First time and we will be back.
Minus the screaming child that night, service was great as always. Reliable food and attentive wait staff
The service was spectacularly bad on our last visit. Everyone received the wrong order, items were missing, and two of just gave up and ate the wrong my food they brought. The wait staff seemed untrained and were unapologetic about the many problems we were experiencing with our orders.
Everything about Meso Maya Lakewood was 5 stars. My only concern is that it was really busy and the dining room looked like it was already at 100% capacity. We were placed in a booth that was in an extremely high traffic area with servers and staff continuously walking by. I was inclined to wear my mask while we waited for our entrees and for the check to arrive. However, all servers and staff were wearing masks and they looked to be wearing them correctly (i.e. over nose and mouth). There was plexiglass between our booth and the booth behind us but no plexiglass on the other side (i.e. front) of the booth. In hindsight, we probably should have opted for outdoor dining instead.
Had to wait 30 minutes for our table and there was no real concern about trying to help or accommodate our reservation
One of my favorite places to get together with the girls
Great food and service
Not what I had expected, food was well below par as was the service. Disappointed
Booked patio dining. Could never get hostess to follow through and actually seat us. The restaurant was near 100% capacity and in violation of Texas capacity limits /covid protocols.
